Nursery Tales

Our good friends at Ocearch have been going slightly nuts lately, tagging at least nine baby great whites in the last few weeks.

These are this year's pups. This is the first time anyone has run across so many pups.

What will really be interesting will be to see if DNA samples match up with the big adult females Ocearch has tagged - Mary Lee and Katherine, for example.

Great White nursery?

Here is Ocearch's main site, which includes the shark tracker:

Since being tagged nearly four years ago, she has traveled nearly 35,000 miles. Here is a shot of the 16 footer at the time she was tagged and released:


A couple of years back, as we were visiting Ocracoke, Mary Lee pinged near the mouth of Ocracoke's harbor - inside Pamlico Sound!
